The Fork in the Road
The Grand Tetons

Psalm 143:8 (NKJV) “Cause me to hear Your loving-kindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.”
The cloud of white swirls around my feet before it rises in a brief storm and disappears into the thin air. Two paths glare at me in the bright morning sun. One climbs up the mountain, the other leads down a twisting, narrow trail. Which way, Lord?
My fingers can practically feel the icy peak and I feel giddy. My goal is almost within my reach. I take a step toward the higher path.
A sudden gust of wind whistles across the path, causing me to stumble. Confusion sweeps through my soul. Why, Lord? Why that way? It’s so long.
The wind settles into a gentle breeze and caresses my face. I raise my eyes to heaven and smile. I’ll go the winding way. His will be done.
So is the journey of life. Can you hear the voice of God at the fork in the road? Do you ask for directions?
